    We moved to NC from the West Coast. Moving to any new place is always hard but when you have a child that is going to be attending Elementary school I think it just adds that much more pressure to a parent. We are so very thankful that we have found such a GREAT school for our son. We love the atmosphere the parent involvement the staff and to top it off my son LOVES his teacher's and is truly happy here. Thank you to Shady Grove for making the move a smooth transition!!! We love it here!!

    The school is excellent I recently moved from another state and have found the academic requirements pleasantly challenging. The parents are very involved (I have never been to a PTO meeting with so many people!) and the teachers work VERY hard. I am thrilled.
